  • What is your workout today?

    Squat: 250lbs x 5 x 3
    Press: 115lbs 4(f),3(f),3(f)
    Dead-Lift: 310lbs x 5

    Progressing fine on Squats, and Deads. My pressing is pitiful though.
    Need to find a way to eat more, because pushing through the last few reps of squats are like going to war. It is getting hellacious!


    • Yesterday
      12-12-12 back squat @ 33lb (felt so weak, don't know what's up with that)
      12-12-12 deadlift @ 70lb

      10 min AMRAP
      5 barbell rows (35lb)
      10 burpees over bar
      15 hip thrusts

      I managed 5 rounds plus 4 rows.

      • Tonight
        5-4-3-2-1 turkish get-ups
        8lb because the next available weight was 20 and I couldn't push it up

        10 min AMRAP
        60 single-unders (or 30 doubles, which I can't do)
        15 power snatch (35lb)

        I did two rounds. Lots of tripping on the jump rope and my right shin is pretty grazed from the barbell

        • Yesterday 5/3/1 deload so easy press, dead lifts, hammer pull downs and squats with my new weight lifting shoes. I slipped some Arnold presses between dead lift sets and think that works well especially since I am doing presses earlier.

          Today - did the usual Saturday 3.5 hour bike ride and really pushed it on a hill climb that took about 29 minutes. When I got home I felt really warmed up, so went down to the local track and ran a few easy 100 yard sprints. This was the first time in a few months. I liked them so much that I order a pair of spikes, so that I can really start going for it. Reminds me of my old high school days then I was on the sprint relay team.


          • Kneeling push-ups 4-3-5-5 (working my way through an app progression t hat will end with 50 consecutive, hope to switch to regular push-ups before the end)

            5x5 band-assisted pull-ups

            5x5 rehab squats w/ 20 lb kettlebell (aka. toes about an inch from the wall, hold kb down like for a deadlift, squat) - prescribed by my chiropractor, really feel this in the mid-back

            Then deadlifts...2-3 min rests in between
            63lb x5
            83lb x3

              You'll never see the light if you're in someone else's shadow, or said another way, life is like a dog sled team, if you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes

                      I remember someone posting something about working up to a body weight Bulgarian split squat. Not quite there yet. Just about a hundred more pounds to go!

                          This is a good series for ideas...

                          Speaking of TRX, have you guys/gals seen the cross core 180? I got to use one in a class and liked it better then the TRX. The suspension trainer is on a pulley so it forces you to use exact amount of force on both sides. This is important to me since i've had 4 left shoulder surgeries and i'm right handed.. so my right side/arm is usually 20% bigger then my left. My buddies love to give me a hard time about my right forearm being bigger then my


                          • Bastardized 5/3/1 cycle 8 week 1 (5/5/5, 8/8/8, Workout A (Squat/Bench)

                            • Squat : 260 x 5 x 3
                              OHP : 115 x 4,3,4,
                              Pull-ups : BW x 12 x 3

                              Any tips on how to get through press sticking point? I've already deloaded once at 100lbs, and this is my second fail at 115lbs.

                              Squats moving up consistently even though I feel like I'm dying after my last set.
